Music CDs & Records

Liona Boyd. No Remedy for Love. CD $14.99. The winner of five Juno Awards and known the world over as “The First Lady of the Guitar,” Boyd has released twenty-eight albums, spanning a wide range of styles. The central theme of her new album is love in its many incarnations, from love for the planet and animals to romantic love and love for the place she now calls home. No Remedy for Love was inspired by the melodic folk, pop and classical music she grew up with and embraces a variety of influences across its seventeen tracks. (Universal. August)

Vijay Iyer Sextet. Far From Over. CD $16.99. His fifth release for ECM since 2014 finds the keyboardist-composer and his dynamic sextet reaching a new peak. Furthering an artistry that led The Guardian to call Iyer "one of the world's most inventive new-generation jazz pianists" Far From Over features a wealth of jazz history even as it pushes boldly forward.The music ranges from the thrillingly explosive to the cathartically elegiac, with melodic hooks, entrancing atmosphere, rhythmic muscle and an elemental spirit all part of the allure. (Universal. August)

Our Sights & Sounds for Summer 2016

by Tyler Vitt - Thursday, Aug 11, 2016 at 12:43pm

Neil Young. Earth. 2-disc CD Set $19.99. Neil Young‘s new live set, enhanced by studio overdubs, does more than offer a new take on favourites from across his storied career. In a collection of 13 songs performed without interruption over a 98 minute concert, Earth combines reinterpretations of Young's environmental songs featuring the Promise of the Real band along with sounds of the earth, from car horns to cows. The album includes tracks taken from last year’s The Monsanto Years to his 1970 classic After the Gold Rush, as well as the previously unreleased song “I Won’t Quit”. (Warner Music. June)

Jeff Beck. Loud Hailer. CD $15.99. The legendary guitarist's first studio album in six years combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power to the power of love. The record contains 11 tracks that span funk, electronic music, soul and the blues with an emphasis on vocal songs. To help him write the 11 tracks, Beck teamed up with London singer Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the songs, with Beck rounding out the album with two of his signature instrumentals. (Warner. July)

Paris to Kyiv. Fragmenti Remixes. CD $20.00. Paris To Kyiv’s Fragmenti was originally released in 2005, a sonic tapestry of ancient Ukrainian song fragments and contemporary sounds. Nearly 11 years later, the remix album explores crossroads between the ancient Ukrainian sounds of Alexis Kochan’s Paris to Kyiv project infused with delicately crafted 21st century electronic wizardry. Other contributors include Greece’s Cayetano, composer Joe Silva, Canadian house music pioneers Miguel Graca and Trevor Walker, and a pair of remixes by Balanced Records’ founders Kasm and Solidaze. (Indie. May)

The Beach Boys. Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Edition. 4-disc CD & Blu-ray Audio Set $95.992-disc CD Set $21.99 / Vinyl $25.99. The Beach Boys' 1966 album, Pet Sounds, is universally hailed as one of popular music's most important recordings of all time. Fifty years after its original release, the 13 songs flow like few records before or after it. But what didn't make it onto the original record — the early fragmented takes of classic songs like “Sloop John B” or the snippets of dialogue between Brian Wilson and the musicians — reveals Wilson crafting the album that would become his masterpiece. (Universal. June)
